SixApart Develops A Tool to Fight Blog Spam

Yesterday was the first time that VanRamblings was hit with pornography spam in the comments section of published articles (the porn comment links have since been removed).

For those of us intent on remaining credible on the blog front, and keeping spam away from our sites, help is finally on the horizon to prevent blog spammers from posting their unwanted material. Coming later this spring: TypeKey for MovableType 3.0 — and, soon after that, for TypePad.

I, for one certainly cannot wait. (well, I can, but I don't want to...)

I get hit at least 100 times every day on my blogs. I was offered to beta test the MT 3.0, but declined because I already do too much beta testing as it is. The only thing I can do at this time is add to my ever-increasing ban list and hope that one day I do not run out of IP addresses.

BTW: Great site! I will be adding you to my Blogroll just as soon as I finish here...
